Underage DWI in Grimes County

Defending Clients Charged with Under 21 DUI

In Texas, a driver under the age of 21 will face different laws and penalties associated with DWI (driving while intoxicated). Fortunately, Grimes County DWI attorney Douglas W. Atkinson is experienced in representing minors who have been arrested for and charged with drunk driving in and around Grimes County, Texas.

DUI by a Minor in Grimes County, Texas

There are two major laws that apply to DWI / DUI involving a driver under 21:

  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol by a Minor (DUI by a Minor):
    • May be charged if a minor has any detectable amount of alcohol in his or her system.
    • Only a minor may be charged with DUI in Texas; adults face DWI charges, which are different.
    • This is a Class C Misdemeanor offense, punishable by possible jail time, community service, fines and license suspension.
  • Driving While Intoxicated (DWI):
    • A minor may face regular DWI charges if his or her blood alcohol concentration is .08% or greater.
    • The minor will face the same DWI penalties that an adult would face.

A minor will also face an ALR hearing after a DUI or DWI arrest, just as an adult will after a DWI arrest. Underage DWI lawyer Doug Atkinson is experienced in representing clients at ALR hearings, in order to contest the suspension or revocation of their driving privileges.
